Kansai Inochi

Well I am a bit late as usual. If any of you are still around would like to take gander at what I’m up to now, then feel free to just hop on over to Kansai Inochi!

Yup… I am studying in Japan right now and this is the reason why this place is on a hiatus once again. Working on the applications, applying for scholarships, filling out other paperworks, do this, do that, get ready… and now here I am. This is also the main reason why I’ve been so inactive on the Gunpla side of things. Ironic isn’t it? I am quitting Gunpla to go to the heaven/kingdom/birthplace of all that plastic goodness xD.

My new site won’t contain Gundam stuff but if you like my random food and miscellaneous life posts here, then you should be very well familiar with what I will be talking about there. Basically another blog about life in Japan just like this place is another blog about Gundam models. Another new learning experience for me just like when I started this blog.

If any of you are pondering about studying abroad in Japan in the future, maybe Kansai Inochi will help provide you with a more personal glimpse of what you can expect to experience over there. A “home look” at Japan perhaps? xD But anyway, I hope to make the blog helpful to those who are interested while still delivering my personal touch on things. Also feel free to ask me any questions related to Japan and I will try my best to get the answers for you.

I was actually already in Japan by the time I made my last post here but it’s just been so… busy that I couldn’t sit down and get back here sooner. it’s only been less than a month, but I’ve done A LOT here already. Traveling, trying out new things, meeting new people, learning how to commute, culture shocking myself… it’s all there. And more will come.

Any Gundam related things? I met up with Rob from ASM for the first time and we had an all too awesome of a time talking about life, Gundam and everything in between while he showed me around Osaka.

Well, anything else you wanna know then you can just hop on over…

See you there!

2-in-1 Review: HG Stark Jegan and Jegan ECOAS

I need to expedite my reviews since I am already taking too long so here’s a first: Double review! HG 1/44 Stark Jegan and the HG 1/144 Jegan ECOAS Type!

But please forgive me if the review is a bit confusing to follow since I didn’t know the best way to mix the reviews together. Hope it is not too bad though ^^;. Enjoy!

Last Kshatriya WISP

Yay… finally got around to the last part of the model (haven’t assembled it yet; still cleaning the pieces). Sadly, it is also the most repetitive. Made even more annoying in that most of the parts are round. Terribly draining to clean the nubs off.  Oh well… at least I can say I am almost finally done with this beast…

The rest of the parts. Arghhh… Those nubs on curves and grooves! With this done, I just gotta finish the sleeves then topcoat. I hope to finish this and roll out its review the same week as the Stark Jegan’s… whenever that may be ^^;. Until then… continue to work on more Gunpla. Like my first MG Gundam in awhile.

WISP: HG 1/144 Kshatriya Body and Stark Jegan Completed

A bit slow on my part this time on working on Ksh’s body. The body is practically a scaled down MG body minus a cockpit! Inner frames, multiple layers, nice color separation and all. The outer armor was so tight fitting, I thought it might snapped or get warped!

WISP: HG 1/144 Stark Jegan

Yea… I know, a Work in Slow Progress post. Yea… I know. I’m just as shocked as you are ^^;. When was the last time there was a WISP post? It was back in October. That’s how long it has been. Looks like there are going to be a few “first time since…” type posts in the coming weeks. Anyway, instead of just sitting here idly while I wait for the right time to go find the parts I need to finish up MG FangJoker, I figured I’d put the time to good use by throwing the Stark Jegan together. Hey, gotta start sometime I guess…

Back to Gunpla…

FINALLY! Z HAS COME BACK… *takes a deep breath* TO GUNPLA INOCHI! o_O *ahem* Anyways, Happy belated 2012, Happy belated Chinese New Year, Happy belated any other holiday that I have missed since December till now. Yea… it’s been that long. Where do I even begin now? Giving you all a personal history/excuse of what I have been doing this whole time and why I have been gone might be a bit lame for a “long time no see” post even if it is typical. I’ll trust that those who understands and believes in me probably won’t need to hear it and those who hates me for it won’t for it anyway. Though I must say… life has been sorta miserable and unlucky for me this whole year but let’s not get into any sob stories. Year of the Dragon… I thought I was supposed to be luckier?

Tie Breaker Results

OMG A CONCLUSION TO THE CONTEST! NO WAY! *ahem* Yea… Working full time hours while being a full time college student doesn’t exactly leave me with too much free time and if it does, the time is best used to sleep @.@. Anyway, hope all of you had a wonderful holiday break and things went according to your keikaku. Now let’s finish what I should’ve finished LONGGGG ago…

The unknown gunpla and category I prize is…
